It’s Time to Trust in Me…



It’s March first and I have made a decision. Starting today and for the next 3 months, I will do a blog post a day as an exercise in personal investment. I have been talking, thinking, longing to do this for a year but terrified of the commitment to myself. It’s fascinating how easily I commit my time and energy to others often leaving what matters to me personally behind, like an unfinished masterpiece left leaning against the wall in the foreground.

I am no longer going to place myself in the foreground. I write in my notes on my phone, I think constantly of ideas and dreams that somehow seem not meant for me. I have not trusted myself to ensure my own success, but its time. Time to voice what matters to me;  words matter to me, thoughts matter to me, art matters to me, people matter to me.

Now some of you I know follow me and will get a daily update, if this drives you crazy for the sheer email volume it creates I won’t hold it against you to unfollow. However I ask you instead to help me. I know I won’t be perfect but I want to be honest. Cheer me on or tell me…“hey, where the hell have you been?”! 

There will be poetry, quotes, art, observations and gratitudes abound. I make no guarantee you’ll like it all, but I do guarantee it will be meaningful and honest… oh and I promise I’ll work to keep it brief!

So today…It’s time to trust in me…

I hope you’ll come for the ride!

  1. Wonderful my dear one. I do get an avalanche of email but will try to read your daily posts, which I’m sure will be more elevating than email job search. Love to you, Scott and my little doggy girlfriend
